first_img Follow the news on Cambodia June 7, 2012 – Updated on January 20, 2016 Broadcasters banned from reporting on local ballots RSF decries Cambodian plan for Chinese-style “Great Firewall” News Receive email alerts Help by sharing this information Reporters Without Borders deplores an information ministry ban on the retransmission by Cambodian stations of Voice of America and Radio Free Asia programmes on the local elections held throughout Cambodia on 3 June. One station was taken off air for a day while another was forced to broadcast musical programming.“Censorship of RFA and VOA programmes deprives voters of objective and detailed news and information,” the international press freedom organization said.“The attitude of the information ministry has worrying implications for the general elections due to be held in 2013. The Cambodian People’s Party of Prime Minister Hun Sen has led the country for almost three decades. The gagging of independent media by the government, and the use of public services and civil servants for party purposes, criticized by electoral observers, are directly responsible for the lack of genuinely democratic balloting as expected by the people. “We remind the government that unfettered access to independent news and information is the basis for any free and transparent election. It must give up its control of the media and online news and information before the 2013 general elections, otherwise they cannot be regarded as transparent or democratic.” VOAprogrammes were to have been broadcast on the frequencies used by Sarika FM 106.5 in Phnom Penh and Angkor Ratha FM95.5 in Siem Reap in the north of the country. An undetermined number of other media outlets have also been prevented from retransmitting news and information from the two foreign broadcasters. Chea Sundaneth, executive director of the Women’s Media Centre of Cambodia, said she had received a request from the ministry on 31 May to stop broadcasting VOA and RFA programmes, as well as those of Radio France Internationaland Radio Australia, on the organization’s radio station. The owner of Angkor Rattha Radio, Keo Rattha, said he had received similar instructions.According to Pa Nguon Teang, executive director of the Cambodian Center for Independent Media, the ban on broadcasting election news was imposed for two days by the information ministry on the orders of the National Election Committee.However, one committee member said the body was not aware of the ban. According to Koul Panha, executive director of the Committee for Free and Fair Elections, state-run media were able to broadcast without any problems.The banning order on VOA and RFA was confirmed on 4 June by San Putheary, head of the audio-visual department at the information ministry, who said its purpose was to maintain a “quiet atmosphere” during the elections.Internet under threat CambodiaAsia – Pacific CambodiaAsia – Pacific RSF_en Organisation News February 24, 2021 Find out more January 21, 2021 Find out more Cambodian journalist gets 20 months in jail for livestream Google experiments drop Australian media from search results News to go further News “Against this background of media censorship, we are also entitled to be concerned at the prospect of the first ever Internet legislation aimed at preventing the ‘propagation of false news’, and combating terrorism and threats to the state,” Reporters Without Borders said.“These arguments are often used by repressive governments such as those of China or Iran to justify the control of online news and information at the expense of dissident voices. It is essential that civil society be consulted in advance of such a bill and that the authorities display transparency in drafting it, and comply with international norms regarding freedom of expression and information. Cambodia is in the process of acquiring its first cyber law. Press and Quick Reaction Unit spokesman Ek Tha was quoted in the Phnom Penh Post as saying it was not designed to restrict the media but to ensure that the “common interest is protected” and to “prevent any ill-willed people or bad mood people from spreading false information, groundless information that could tend to mislead the public and affect national security or our society”. The newspaper also quoted Chem Sangva, director-general of the inspection department at the Ministry of Post and Telecommunications, as saying the law was aimed at preventing such crimes as terrorism or the theft of state secrets. He said Cambodia had exchanged experiences with other countries in the region to learn from them in drafting the law. December 28, 2020 Find out morelast_img read more

“I had to apologise to my children”

It was the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my life”.Those are the words of Limerick City woman, Deirdre, who left and abusive marriage after 25 years of being at the mercy of her husband’s absolute control and violent mood swings.“I never thought I was in an abusive relationship because he never laid a finger on me, Yet now I know that’s exactly what it was.I lived in fear of how he would be when he came through the door for all those years”.Deirdre was sharing her experience of escaping abuse during the international 16 days of opposition to violence against women.When Deirdre married, she had no idea what was ahead.“The first time I saw him carry on the way he did for most of our marriage was after our second child was born. He was hammering at something on the landing. It was late at night and a neighbour came in and asked me to ask him to stop the noise.“When I did, he threw the hammer at me from the top of the stairs”.“He was depressed and he would stay in bed for most of the day. But I had to listen for his every move and have a cup of tea ready, at drinkable temperature, when he finally came down the stairs. If it wasn’t how he liked it, he would throw it at me”.Deirdre says she lost her friends as she could never predict whether her husband would be gracious or insulting to them if they called. “I had no social life. He wanted to know where I was every minute of every day. If I went anywhere, he would call my mobile constantly and it had better be switched on”.A combination of depression and drink added fuel to her husband’s fire and the final straw came when their teenage son walked out of the house in the middle of the night after being roused by “roaring and shouting. He demanded we go after him and when we found my son, he hit him. That was the end for me. I realised that this wasn’t normal.”.Deirdre planned to use money she had stashed to accommodate her husband’s drinking to get away. She initially went to another part of the country and then was put in touch with Adapt services in Limerick.“I stayed with them for a few months and I can’t say enough about the support they gave me. When I wanted to talk, they were there. When I couldn’t talk about it, they were there too”.Deirdre has since moved back into the marital home that her husband left and has found a job.“I want women to know that just because they don’t have physical bruises doesn’t mean that they are not suffering abuse. But there is support and there is escape”, she said.
